Battle of Ideas 2012, The Barbican Centre Sunday 21 October, 6.30pm until 7.30pm, Conservatory Battle for Social Justice At first glance, the monarchy of 2012 seems to be in rude health. The Diamond Jubilee has been not so much an occasion for jingoistic national fervour as for quiet satisfaction that we live in a stable, free democracy that much of the world's population can only envy. The Queen is viewed with almost unalloyed respect for the personal qualities she has brought to her role, and ...

[audio]Organ donation: dead or alive? - Institute of Ideas
Battle of Ideas 2012, 21st October, Barbican, London The Greek philosopher Epicurus said 'as far as death is concerned, we men live in a city without walls'. No doubt it comes as certainly as we pay taxes, but are we so sure what it actually is? Can we put our finger on that dividing line between life and non-life? Seeking moral certainty about the big question is more than philosophical idling. The ethics of organ transplantation are largely based on 'brain death' - the certainty that brain act...

From its beginnings in New York's Zucotti Park last Autumn, there is little doubt that the Occupy movement has been highly successful at grabbing a lot of media attention. Indeed such has been the focus that not only did Time magazine see fit to name the 'protester' as its Person of the Year 2011, the American Dialect Society chose 'occupy' as its word of the year. And while there has been some criticism of the various occupations in the US and the UK, the coverage has been largely favourable...

The UK riots of last summer had a certain unreality about them. They took the nation by horrible surprise as youths trashed their own neighbourhoods, reviving talk of a 'broken society'. Yet in their immediate aftermath, as the 'clean-up' campaigns got to work, our faith in the future of community was apparently restored. 'Pop-up' groups of residents appeared unprompted on the streets almost before the smoke had cleared, armed with brooms to clean up the mess (although they went their separate w...
